Posing with Suresh K. Nair, the dancing painter born in Kerala, known for his musical way of creating murals. In magical Varanasi (Banaras), where he teaches Painting, you can visit dozens of these urban moments where tradition meets modernity and the abstract flirts with the figurative. Such is the case of the extraordinary ‘Five Elements’, a public mural at Little Flower House School, Nagwa. It is an example of the playfully powerful moves this artist is capable of: While my early practice was very traditional – done in temples and private spaces – most of the new works are done in public or open spaces. The picture was taken at the precious Bharat Kala Bhavan Museum, sited in the Banaras Hindu University, celebrating this year a hundred years of existence!
